A disgruntled ex-employee of a Whole Foods in Toronto fired off a very cranky farewell e-mail to his former co-workers, referring to the grocery chain as a "faux hippy Wal-Mart." Here are some selections from the massive missive along with some photos of cats in Whole Foods bags. Names have been redacted to protect the underemployed. The entire sprawling screed can be read at Gawker.
It used to be that a home in the suburbs defined the American Dream, but today we’re just happy to have enough money to retire on, according to a new survey produced for MainStreet.
Real life. Now more horrifying than The Onion. You know, I sometimes threaten to sell my kids to the circus if they're bad, but that's the crux. It's a threat. Get it together people!

Well this is a talent that will never come in handy, but is still kind of cool. A drinking game of some kind has to be involved though, right? Why else would someone learn to do this?
Mario Balotelli sucks. From all indications he's a jerk and people don't like playing with him. Also he's not as good as he thinks he is. Also he can't properly put on a bib. So now that we can add "failed showboat" to his other descriptions, can we just agree that he is the Chad Johnson of soccer?
Wow. A man named Richard Arrocho, screaming that someone was trying to kill him, climbed into the side window of the 5 train in New York and threatened to stab the conductor with a screwdriver. After wrestling with the conductor, Arrocho briefly commandeered the train. The conductor and some concerned passengers at first tried to lock Arrocho in the cabin, but then realizing they didn't want a crazy person potentially hurtling them to their doom, talked him out of the control room. Thankfully no one was hurt and Arrocho is in custody. Also thankfully, someone got all of this on video.
People have been dying in strange ways forever. Here are some of the weirdest deaths in the past three hundred years.
I like Coldplay a lot better when it's Robyn. Other things I like: That Chris Martin has so little shame at this point that he unironically titled this song "Every Tear Is A Waterfall." Or maybe that's a thing I don't like? I'm increasingly having trouble telling the difference nowadays.

Irvin Rosenfeld, 52-year-old stockbroker, recently went to court for reeking of marijuana. Due to a little-known U.S. taxpayer-funded program, the court ruled that Irvin was exempt from possession laws because of his rare health condition. The 'compassionate use' program has been in effect since 1982, though only ten (two anonymous) people have ever been able to make use of it. Four are alive today and will receive joints, courtesy of the federal government, till the day they die. Soo... why isn't weed legal again?
